I can see the pictures. I'm asking if the colors in the flesh are the same as the website. A picture doesn't answer the question.
Is the website representative of the true color of the fabric?thanks
^i love that fabric dopey. Peter Smith searched for me but there was none left. The newer version that I selected is a little less "huntsman" than yours, but it still has that depth of fabric that the better tweeds have. As for the current state of affairs, I can't say that all of the changes seem to be for the better. For the bespoke customers, I think little has changed, but I do worry that the people that are the heart and soul of the place aren't necessarily being...
Are those who dislike tcbrgs choices speaking of the pattern or of flannel in general as an odd jacket? I think the flannel blazer is as old as the odd jacket itself. I think some of the fox fabrics, the French navy in particular, would make a stunning blazer.I think flannel is fine.
^tcbrgs - that looks great. who is the tailor?
^re; the 10 oz fox flannel: there are at least two decent reviews in this thread. There is some wisdom on this board that 10 oz flannel is always a bad choice. I think that there are likely many, many variables that go into that and I'm more than happy to figure it out for myself. I love the heavier fox flannels but they don't make the birdseye in a heavier weight and I have a 14 ounce fox flannel suit and in NYC, it can only be worn during the coldest months.
Not obnoxious to me, but this is the one that I just purchased.
My newest acquisition is the birdsye flannel from fox in 300 grams. I've never used a flannel this light but I think I would get really great use out of it and since the flannel is a lighter weight, I'm planning to have it made as a 3-piece.
All of the Savile Row houses that I know of do women's bespoke. Richard Anderson, Poole, Huntsman, A&S, etc. I can't say whether one of them is better or worse with women than others, but just like when a man tries to decide among houses there is a stylistic choice that is being made when one chooses a tailor. I would advise your friend to play around on the web or visit the row if she has the ability and decide which house strikes her fancy stylistically.
^regarding Hermes bespoke shirts, they are made by in-house tailors in Pantin. They no longer outsource the men's bespoke shirts and they have their own tailors. In New York, they have an in house alterations tailor to communicate with Pantin and to make minor changes.
